Black-headed Gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus)

Origin: Northern Atlantic and Eurasian coastlines
Sighted at: Higgs Beach, Key West, FL

No trip to Key West would be complete without a trip to feed the seagulls at the beach. Key West has always played host to a wide variety of gull species, but this was the first time I’ve ever seen Black-headed gulls in such great numbers. They usually favor northern waters!
